OMG what a great place. I'm not sure why but I thought this was some kind of wedding venue type place. Boy was I wrong and I could kick myself for not eating here sooner. The food was so delicious and the drink and dessert choices are out of this world. It will take many trips to try everything I... More

I don't know what more to say. We had just eaten 5 orders of sushi and promised our daughter ice cream. Nobody was hungry but we all wanted ice cream. Google mapped and this place came up. Unbelievably good! Just absolutely a treat!! Can't say enough and our server was excellent and very helpful!!!

Everything in this restaurant is homemade--although they do bring in the ice cream from Wisconsin. It is the best ice cream in St. Louis and their homemade hot fudge and raspberry toppings are fresh and mouth-watering. Specialty sundaes and cocktails with ice cream base are all winners. We go here a lot with the kids, but the classy, intimate decor... More
